On a day that people who matter very little announced they were going to attempt to matter again in this country. It was refreshing to be able to look at beautiful fashion from France. We had flash, the 20th Century noun not the 21st century program, nor the verb, from MMM. Flashes of brilliance, literally the lights dancing and spinning off of a glittering Armani Prive collection. The proper attitude from Hussein Chalayan, "There are so many brands that are old, that are being revived," he explained beforehand. "It shouldn't be about revisiting the archives." And Olympian imagination and construction from Alexandre Vauthier and Ulyana Sergeenko.
